Press Release

Will you be Europe’s best cybersecurity talent?

European countries have started or are preparing to kick off their national cybersecurity competitions. The winners of the national contests will represent their countries in the ultimate cybersecurity competition on the continent: the European Cyber Security Challenge (ECSC) 2019.

Published on June 06, 2019

Similar to the ECSC, the national cybersecurity competitions consist of security-related challenges from domains such as web security, mobile security, crypto puzzles, reverse engineering, and forensics, which the participants have to solve in order to collect points. The individuals with the most points win the competition and secure a place in their national team, which will go on to compete in the ECSC 2019 in Romania.

In some countries, the national cybersecurity competitions have already finished, while some of them are currently ongoing or will begin later this year.

ENISA and all the participating countries will post regular updates on the national competitions through their social media channels. Be sure to subscribe to and follow them. The official hashtag of the European Cyber Security Challenge final will be #ECSC2019.

Each country sets its own rules and eligibility criteria, so make sure you check them out thoroughly.

The ECSC, an initiative of the EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) is already at its sixth edition. The event’s focus is to identify, bring together, and nurture the best cybersecurity talents across Europe, with a view to address the shortage of cybersecurity professionals.

The job fair running in parallel of the ECSC also provides a great platform for young people interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity to connect with industry organisations.

This year, the ECSC will be hosted by Romania in Bucharest, from 9 to 11 October. The official website of the competition is https://www.europeancybersecuritychallenge.eu/#ecsc.
